Problem Gambling Telephone Intervention

UGSP and the Office of Problem Gambling (OPG), along with existing problem gambling helpline services, operate a problem gambling telephone intervention (PGTI). It is an enhanced phone case management and relapse prevention program for those with limited access to treatment or self-help resources and for motivated callers who want assistance in recovery and relapse prevention. Services are provided in English, Spanish, and Chinese to a diverse population of Californians.

For PGTI services in English, Spanish or Asian languages please contact: 1-800-GAMBLER or 1-800-426-2537.
